I had a very strong Catholic woman once ask if I thought perhaps reincarnation was compatible with the Catholic teaching on purgatory: Is it possible that it is the way we finish the unfinished, learn to love more fully, and finally attain worthiness of heaven? I know many Catholics turn down reincarnation on the grounds of “after death comes judgement,” but Catholics DO agree that this judgement is merely assignment to heaven, hell, or purgatory.
What do you think? I know the apologist on this site has said before “ghost” sightings and reports may be related in some instances to souls experiencing their purgatory here on earth by revisiting certain important events. What about this?
